Apple has announced Steve Jobs obituary on their homepage.
The top-page has Steve Jobs portrait, and the numbers "1955-2011" next to it. When you click on the photo, the following statement appears.
"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being
Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."
